As Singapore enters the 5G era, the next-generation mobile technology isn’t the only change its major telcos are dealing with. All three—Singtel, StarHub, and M1—will have a new chief executive leading the way.
While M1 appointed a new chief executive in December 2018, StarHub is on the hunt, with current CEO Peter Kaliaropoulos retiring on 31 October for personal reasons. But the man stepping into arguably the hottest CEO seat in Singapore’s telco space is Yuen Kuan Moon.
Earlier in October, Yuen, or Moon, as he prefers to be called, was appointed CEO-designate of Singtel. He will replace Chua Sock Koong on 1 Jan 2021, who stepped down after a 13-year run, which saw Singtel capture over 50% of the market.
